9 Principles of Spiritually & Emotionally Healthy Disciples PDF Print E-mail

Ever struggle to keep up a “good Christian” front for the people around you, when what you really feel is frustration and disappointment? Ever feel that spiritual life and “real” life are worlds apart?  The great news is that, when “tired and stressed” is our default emotion,  God is ready to transform us and make strong and healthy.  The biblical truths of His Word provide the means to lliving an integrated life of contemplative spirituality and emotional health, and He will make us into “oaks of righteousness…to display His splendor,” (Isaiah 61:3b).

Here are some of the topics we’ll cover:

1. The Scorched Leaf Principle

2.  The Problem of Emotionally Unhealthy Spirituality

3.  Breaking the Power of the Past

4.  Surrendering To Your Limits

5.  Loving Christ Above All Else

We begin this new series on Wednesday night, August 27th, at 6:30.  Each week's class will be repeated the following Sunday morning at 8:30.  These classes are held in the Community Center - 100 Building.

Pray Big Circles PDF Print E-mail

Dear SWC Family,

 Just wanted to drop our SWC family a quick note to say "hello" during our time away.  The Oregon Coast has treated us well...refreshment to our body and soul!

 The crashing of the waves against the large rugged rocks, just one evidence of God's created "fireworks," have garnered my attention towards the Creator.  Folks, I can't say it enough: "we serve a great great God that is worthy of ALL our worship, ALL the time."

 Our call and sense of urgency for making prayer (both corporate and individual) a priority this summer has been echoed by a significant number of national and international ministries, having this same sense of urgency and making similar calls to prayer.  The best way that I can describe this common call is simply that "God is getting our attention and this is only the beginning." 

 This week, our prayer focus should especially be for our nation.  I hope you'll celebrate God's blessings this 4th of July. As you do, PRAY big "circles" around our leaders, our military, our local civil servants, and our citizens. Pray with the passion and purpose of the early church:

 Acts 3:19  "Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord."

 Join us this (and every Wednesday) at 6:30pm.  The kids and students are taking part in this prayer movement, starting at the same time in their usual meeting rooms.

 This Sunday, I begin a new message series "Great and Mighty Things."  Invite a friend to hear the Good News with you and hear how "God is getting our attention."  In preparation, please consider: What is God telling us these days?  Are these days to fear it, fake it, or faith it?  I'll be teaching out of Acts 8:4-24....What an amazing passage of Scripture in which to begin seeing God's great and mighty things!

 Our family sends our love.  We look forward to being back in fellowship with you this weekend.

 For His Glory, 

Pastor Chris
